Greater Manchester Integrated Care Partnership publishes asthma report in collaboration with Health Innovation Manchester

Following detailed engagement with the local community, a report has been published analysing asthma and respiratory illness in children and young people (CYP) in Oldham.

Working in partnership with Health Innovation Manchester, the report looks at the information gathered through community engagement sessions, which explored how much people know about asthma and the effects of triggers, particularly around smoking.

A total of eight engagement sessions were delivered by ABL Health, in partnership with Health Innovation Manchester across various venues in Oldham and supported by several community groups, including Age UK, Women’s Chai Project, and Oldham Athletic Community Trust.

The feedback from this community engagement provided opportunities for true public and community co-developed materials, including educational assets and resources, and video case studies that will be published later in 2024. These resources will provide further support and guidance for children, young people and families in the area.

The report can be read on Health Innovation Manchester’s website, along with more information about the project.

This work is part of the wider Innovation for Healthcare Inequalities Programme (InHIP) pilot at The Royal Oldham Hospital (ROH)  It aims to transform services for children and young people living with asthma and related conditions, as well as reducing harms caused by smoking and second-hand smoke.
